Did you do some research first?
Did you read the install guide ?
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/...erprise_Linux/

with win7 pre installed there is a "recovery" partition
that rhel ( it is not free by the way ) might have installed grub on


very common and VERY well documented
-- google it --- search : "dual boot windows 7" +RHEL
http://www.google.com/#hl=en&xhr=t&q...w=1920&bih=805

HOW did you install 5 ??
also why not the current RHEL6.1

seeing as YOU MUST buy a license for it RHEL is not free
why 5 and not the current 6


dose windows still install ?
